– DISCUSSION of the meaning and emotion of putting a pet “down”. There are classes on grief counseling for the loss of a pet. The pets we have “never live long enough”. Attention should be paid to the quality of life for the pet.
– QUESTIONS FROM “JOEY PALS”
1. Are these 5 breeds Vets recommend you SHOULD NOT HAVE as a pet… Huskies, any rescue dog, cockapoos, German Shephards and French Bull Dogs? (There is NO BREED that folks should not have. All dogs can be good dogs, dogs that misbehave do so because of the owner. No bad dogs, just BAD OWNERS.)
